The Jr. Roughnecks Midget Team announced the team’s active roster for the 2017 Junior National Lacrosse League Tournament.

“Over the last (four weeks) we’ve seen a sharp increase in the level of execution, the compete level, and the pace of play” said Midget coach John Kilbride. “Our players are starting to transition from having to think about what they’re doing on the floor, to simply acting/reacting.

“I think this next level of play is going to translate well at this tournament, but also our players are really going to enjoy the overall experience thanks to the high level of competition, along with the superb care our executive, management, and parents are putting into this endeavour.

“In the end we have a great group of young men who are showing us every practice that they care about becoming the best players they can be, and the best people they can be. That’s what lacrosse can help facilitate in us all.”
